My Gift

I just want you to look at this journal Mary sent me! She didn't know this but I was considering buying one just for a prayer journal and then this came in the mail to me with a sweet note. It is so pretty. The picture does not do it justice. Look at the V for my name! I love it. I told her that when Sweet Teen & Angel see this they are going to want instructions to make it so she said she would send them to me. Mary is such a good blogging friend. I just love her! Click on her name above and go visit her blog. Thank you Mary! You made my day!
My Prayer Journal.

A Mothers Prayer

I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch him where he goes
And help him to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead him to a place
Guide him with your grace
To a place where he'll be safe

I pray he finds your light
And holds it in his heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind him where you are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide him with your grace
Give him faith so he'll be safe

Lead him to a place
Guide him with your grace
To a place where he'll be safe

Oh how beautiful! I love your journal! We have a wonderful friend in Mary, and I am so proud we got to know her thru her wonderful blog!
The prayer says it all! Nothing is more precious than our Lord and our children.

That journal is beautiful and will be perfect for a prayer journal. I've copied and saved the mother's prayer. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful prayer journal, I have all my journals since I was saved over 30 years ago. It is so good to look back over them and see how God has moved in our lives. The mothers prayer is lovely too...thanks for sharing
